Nowadays, my high school teaching life skills as well as traditional subject such as math history and science. High school teacher say 'preparing adult life is important for every one ' .They gives us opportunity to develop talent.

I think.preparing adult life is important especially work experience .people prepare only university exam.They don't interested in social skills .They say 'preparing adult life is wast of time because I'm not interested in future '.

On the other hand ,some people say ' I learn social skill from part time job' . Some people don't interested in University .They want to work after high school .in addition High school education is occasionally poor experience .

To sum up ,developing life skill is essential for us . I want to know what business is valuable for me .

I am agree with Aiana 178 learning English with this site is so wonderful and useful specially learning with playing and discuss around a subject.
unfortunately schools are not really useful or at least in my country happen it, you should find and experienced something with yourself...
for example our school never told us how we can act in difficult situation or never learned us cooking,our teachers never told us how we can increase our confidence or face with problems or many thing else...when you left the school and going to university and Be away from family , Little by little you understand how to behave with society...

I dont think that schools are preparing for you for the real world...it definitely teach us about friendship, sharing,respecting but it will not teach you diplomacies, shrewdness etc. which is very much prevailing in our society.Neither Schools teach us how to fight with stress in your life.
